Mixtape #148


June is here and what better way to set the mood than with our monthly mixtape, this time round kindly curated by Belgian quartet Echoes of Zoo, who released last month an electrifying and exhilarating second album, Speech of Species. Founded by multi-instrumentalist and composer Nathan Daems, and also comprising Bart Vervaeck, Lieven Van Pée and Falk Schrauwen, the band experiments with a dense jungle of sounds and influences as diverse as psychedelic jazz, Eastern and Balkan sounds, West African grooves, dub and rock, with a punk attitude underpinning their approach to music. We’re ecstatic they put together this amazing genre-spanning mix, giving nods to the impressive diversity of influences at play in their music.
